.Net Imaging SDK in 32 or 64-bit - For the Perfect Fit

"Snowbound’s RasterMaster SDK for .NET gave me the image viewing tools needed so I could begin creating code. Snowbound wasn’t the only vender in town, but I liked their tools and working examples – they were really easy to work with, enabling me to get up-to-speed quickly - without needing classes or training." - Patrick Neece, Chief Information Officer, Jefferson Regional Medical Center

Off-the-shelf document viewing and conversion applications address many of the requirements for most organizations, but to best leverage existing enterprise systems, software developers often turn to Software Development Toolkits (SDKs) like the .NET Imaging SDK from Snowbound Software. SDKs provide software developers with the tools needed to create a tailored solution – for the best integration with other systems, and the ability to build in customized functionality that may more directly meet the needs of the enterprise.

.NET Imaging SDK from Snowbound

At Snowbound Software, we offer document viewing and conversion applications that meet the needs of many customers, as well as our .NET Imaging SDK, which enables companies to develop and customize this functionality, providing companies the best of both worlds. For enterprises with more complex content management or document processing requirements – such as claims processing for the insurance industry or medical records access for healthcare professionals – using an SDK to seamlessly integrate and leverage existing enterprise systems may be the optimal solution.

Snowbound’s RasterMaster SDKs are available for a variety of platforms including Java, Windows and our .NET Imaging SDK highlighted here. Comprehensive code libraries are provided along with extensive format support (embedded within), to enable developers to create and integrate document/image conversion and viewing functionality into existing enterprise applications and workflow environments such as Enterprise Content Management (ECM) systems, Business Process Automation and other solutions designed to manage the document lifecycle.

Our .NET Imaging SDK offers well over 100 features and functions designed to enable software developers to quickly and easily incorporate document and image processing functionality into their products or applications. Built-in functions offered with RasterMaster SDK include:

  • Image functions for creation, compression, decompression, saving, display and processing
  • Document conversion and text extraction functions
  • Color promotion and reduction functions
  • Info query and text search functions
  • Scanning, printing and annotation functions
  • Image clean up functions

RasterMaster .NET Imaging SDK also offers comprehensive file support for hundreds of document and image formats, to ensure seamless integration via universal document and image support. So no matter what application a document or image was authored in – RasterMaster technology provides the capabilities to efficiently convert and display an organization’s mission-critical files.

DocClean, an optional image clean-up module, can be added to RasterMaster .NET Imaging SDK or Windows SDK. DocClean enables developers to incorporate expert image clean-up capabilities into any Windows-based application. Some of the DocClean functions that can either be invoked manually (as needed), or called automatically include the detection and removal of blank pages, blobs, speckles and hole-punch circles. Combined with the existing document manipulation capabilities of Snowbound’s base RasterMaster library, document processing is greatly enhanced with the ability to straighten or rotate skewed scanned images through auto invert, auto orient and deskew capabilities.

RasterMaster .NET Imaging SDK - Real-World Scenario

RasterMaster has been utilized by software developers to create solutions to help them best leverage their resources to help their companies and their customers. Whether used in a Java SDK, Windows SDK or .NET Imaging SDK environment, RasterMaster provides the tools needed to create and integrate document imaging, viewing and conversion technology into enterprise applications.

RasterMaster .NET Imaging SDK Breathes New Life into Hospital’s Records System

Jefferson Regional Medical Center (JRMC) is the fourth largest medical center in Arkansas with a patient base of approximately 280,000 spanning 11 counties.

When someone is admitted to the hospital, their patient information is entered into the hospital information system (HIS) system during registration, making it easy for hospital staff to access details on any previous visits, including scanned and imported images, as it’s critical to have the ability to search and view available patient information quickly.

Although the system didn’t require a lot of support, the IT team couldn’t do anything more with it. There were no more new releases, updates, or functionality coming that would enable them to provide enhancements for their clinical and administrative users.

“I began researching image viewers, when I found Snowbound Software I knew I had come to the right place. I chose their RasterMaster™ .NET Imaging SDK, which is specifically designed for Visual Basic .NET. This solution gave me all of the image tools I needed to pull up, view, split, and modify images in a multitude of formats,” Patrick Neece, Chief Information Officer, JRMC.
